Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I left my job in DC to start graduate school in Palo Alto this past fall. In New York, my hometown, for awhile though!

I spend a lot of time trying to find markers that work, writing math on whiteboards, and then gesturing at said math.

I also am trying to get better at tennis and take salsa lessons this summer. So if you have any interest in those activities, tell me!

I've been playing violin since the age of 10. I have a New Years resolution to master a movement of a concerto.

Dvorak, Shostakovich, Bartok, Mozart, Mahler, Schubert, Chopin, the Clash, REM, anything pitchfork tells me.

Favorite places, outside the contiguous United States, in no particular order: Hong Kong, Madrid, Tokyo, Orccha (India), Leh (also India), Granada, Xinjiang, Montreal.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I played chess competitively in middle and high school. I still find myself playing online when I have nothing better to do.

Friend once used the term "Manic Pixie Dream Economist" to describe me.

Not sure if it's a great description of me, but I think it's hilarious.
